Mark Cavendish secured his first Olympic medal at the third time of asking after securing silver in the men’s Omnium.
After eight years of trying, Cavendish finished behind Italy’s Elia Viviani, while defending champion Lasse Norman Hansen of Denmark took bronze.
He collected his silver with 194 points, as Viviani won with 207 points and Hansen settled for third with 192.
Cavendish said: “Ultimately I couldn’t have done any more. I have to be happy.
“Elia was better across the six disciplines. He deserved to win that Olympic gold.
“It’s always disappointing not to win, but I did all I could, so yes, I’m happy.”
